It has been almost four long years since Sunflower Bean last released a full-length album, their sophomore outing Twentytwo In Blue. The wait for its follow-up is about to come to an end. Today, Sunflower Bean have announced a new album called Headful Of Sugar. It’s out at the beginning of May.

“Tomorrow is not promised, no tour is promised, no popularity is promised, no health or money is promised,” bassist/vocalist Julia Cumming said in a statement. “Why not make what you want to make on your own terms? Why not make a record that makes you want to dance? Why not make a record that makes you want to scream?”

Along with the announcement, Sunflower Bean have also shared a lead single called “Who Put You Up To This?” “Are you satisfied? Who put you up to do things that you do? Was it your own choice? Questioning your life is the first step to taking the agency to change it,” they said of the track. “Sometimes you have to let go of who you have been so that you can become who you want to be.” Check it out below.
